    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. A well made score, focused highly around piano, orchestra, and vocals. These OST is far too great for such a humble movie where the plot in it's entirety is titular. You will be wasting $15 to see this movie in theaters, but the the money spent on this track will not be wasted money. Or maybe it will. I don't know what you do with these songs. A passionate night of love? Something to play to your cat? All I know is, these are songs, and you have ears, so it's a 70% chance you like it. In today's economy, that's pretty good. About 40% good. No, 50%. That's all for this review, see the documentary about it called; "I Wrote a Review". By James Cameron. Expand

    It can perfectly capture the film's conflicted moods of sadness and euphoria, but just as easily turn cloying and sickly. [Jun 2012, p.87]

    It's as dreamy and atmospheric as you might expect, but the truth is that only a handful of Jónsi's 15 tunes here really work without the context of some CGI tigers.

    He's devised a musical backdrop that subtly evokes the innocence, warmth and zoophiliac empathy of the film's message.
